    The most interesting room in the castle is the topmost one in the keep. This hall is famous for its inverted ship-keel timbered ceiling in which the wood was axe-hewn and aged in water and then air-driedfor almost a century. The room was built 700 years ago and the wood is still in prime condition. The superstructure can be seen from an adjacent defensive walkway. Access is by an narrow stone stairwell in the castle wall.

    This ball room continues the same artillery motifs on the beams with a severe mantelpiece, period furniture and a carved secretary.

    Not only was Sully an expert administrator and a workaholic but he was also a top-notch military man with expertise in the newly developing artillery field and warfare in general.It is not surprising to find the mantel and ceiling of his study decorated with incendiary devices as his logo.
